    I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    More control over your day-to-day than more junior roles. Opportunity to work with executive-level clients at the largest companies in the world. Opportunity to make a difference.

    Cons

    Never-ending demands, pulled in multiple directions by McKinsey partners. Comp not great for amount of work you put in. Chance of election low - no downside to designating a million APs, and then being super-selective about who is elected to partner.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to make AP a more manageable role for women - when you leave for maternity leave it's tough to get re-integrated.

    Pros

    Fast growth, Analyst to Partner in 10 years, or out
    Learn a lot in a short span of time
    Great networking opportunities

    Cons

    Lower compensations compared with US offices
    Work-life balance is difficult to maintain
    Cut throat competition

    Advice to Management

    Bring compensation on par with other US offices, this is really a turn off. Higher taxes in Canada, and lower compensations
